It would make life so much easier if the newbies would read the site rules as everything is explained there...then they wouldnt bitch&moan when they get in trouble for posting "for sale" or "want to buy/trade" threads outside of classifieds

Well ok, go and pay your ebay and paypal fees then. You wouldnt believe the parts stashes these guys have here. The special and rare bits that pop through in the classifieds...your loss, our gain

Besides, $10 is a meal at Mc Donalds...cant afford that? then how can you afford a tank of gas to go blatting around on

Perfectly fine if you don't pay for the forum or post anything in the classifieds - go to ebay or craigslist. It's in the membership area to keep scammers and 10 post wonders from hocking garbage as brand new and disappearing. Ebay has conflict resolution. Craigslist is supposed to be local only. Some asshat comes into an internet forum, rips someone off, then runs away and refuses to respond to messages/calls, it's tough shit to the guy ripped off.

Where in my comment was I complaining or saying I couldn't afford it? I said it seemed strange is all. Even apologize for the question. I had read the section where u pay but didn't quite understand. Feel free to relax sometime.

I completely understand. Same reason our GTO forum requires so many threads before you can post sales and wants. Plus a seller section for comments on who is GTG.

Most forums now days are going to paying sites. The basic user can have access but for anything good you have to pay. Plus with that membership you get access to the R section. That by itself is worth it.

You are not paying for access to the website,you are only paying to access certain parts of the website.
It's not fair to the sponsors/vendors/site supporters who have been here for years&years,who pay for advertising their wares only to have people join up with the sole intention of getting rid of some parts to make a few bucks,not contribute anything useful to the forum,make 1 for sale post&disappear forever

All a minimum post count accomplishes is that people will post random, non-contributing things to reach that number, cluttering the forum even more.

Requiring people to pay also means that if a deal goes sour, us staff have access to the PayPal info of the offending party which deters quite a few scammers

Confuses vag for cock... That would be "cock" as in rooster. Which might be even worse. And takes more duct tape to avoid a damn mess. Has lead to interesting nights.

Because you can't even spell a simple word like "reason" correctly.

We don't want to read your illiteracy in that forum too....
